Step 1: First Start by Cutting Off the Very End of the Pepper.
Then cut through the top about half an inch in.
You might have to use a small amount of force to get through the stem.
Step 2: Next Cut Down the Side of the Pepper, So It Can Be Laid Out Flat.
Cup off any of the bitter white parts, along with the centre which holds the seeds.
Stand on one end and shake off any seeds.
Step 3: I Like to Cut This Is Half Making It Easier to Slice.
The best way to slice consistently and safely is to slightly hold the end of your fingers in protecting them and using your knuckles to guide the knife.
Slice the pepper into strips. Then in half.
Repeat with the other half.
Step 4: Take the Top of the Pepper and From the Inside Push the Stem Out, It Will Simply Pop Out Whole.
Finally, slice the top and bottom of the pepper.
